5.0 out of 5 stars Thought-provoking and inspirational, 21 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Women Don't Ask: Negotiation and the Gender Divide (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed this book and wish I had read it years ago. It might not have made any difference, but I think the lessons learned from the many real-life examples might have been useful for me in my own career. The book is full of statistics and real experiences and gives plenty of reasons why some of these situations may occur and what we can do about them. I recommend that everyone both male and female read the book just to help each person become a little more aware of some of the common mistakes that people make, and hopefully over time, we can become a more tolerant and open society. Neither I, nor the book, are saying that the phenomena discussed account for all women in the world, but at the very least its worth considering and dismissing each point as they are made. The fact is that every person is different, and what works for one person may not work for another. So whether you're a female, or an ethnic minority or another edge case, its worth thinking about who the situations you find yourself in are designed for and whether you are presenting yourself in the most appropriate way.
